YPOS Tries… OOLA Distillery!

Calling all vodka, gin and whiskey enthusiasts! This YPOS Tries is all about the OOLA Distillery!

As soon as OOLA introduced their distillery tour to us, we knew it would be the perfect way to share their spirits with our awesome group.  

So here’s how it went…

Last Saturday, a bunch of our closest friends and I joined an A-list of liquor enthusiasts at OOLA  Distillery

“A-List-ers” or enthusiasts who joined me on the tour
Kirby… talking about labeling

OOLA’s Head Distiller, Kirby Lewis, taught us the entire distilling process from back to front.  From the growing of the yeast (or ‘yeast orgy’ as Kirby put it), heating/cooling process, fermentation, specific ingredients used (OOLA only uses ‘Salmon Safe organic winter wheat, barley, rye, corn) to the final product, this liquor gets a lot of love. 


After each one of us felt a little bit smarter, we were ready to quench our thirst with all OOLA had to offer and that was – Vodka, Citrus Vodka, Rosemary Vodka, Chili Pepper Vodka, Gin, Waitsburg Bourbon Whiskey and Smoked Whiskey.  These small pours were packed with flavor, sass and a little creativity (smoked Whiskey was one of the group’s favorites).


Options. We like options.

So there you have it, we tried 9 liquors and we lived to tell the tale.  For anyone out there doubting just how good these liquors are, go ahead schedule a tour and get ready to enjoy!

**mention ‘YPOS’ when scheduling a tour (in person) and you will get two for one! **
